Post COVID getaway with the SO for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend November 27 to November 29, 4th Floor lake view tower room. Our Thoughts * Arrived before the 4p checkin to explore and get familiar with the property but when we did check in we thought we were double booked into someone else’s room because bags were in our room! * Cob webs off the window valences and in corners. * First dinner, 7:45p seating and the pork chops (a substitution that evening) were dry AVOID. * First breakfast. Being lazy and enjoying ourselves we decided to do room service… DO NOT. We have had better from our corner deli — cardboard clamshells with a well measured (not generous) portions of eggs, potatoes, sausage:bacon and toast ALL COLD. Instead of delivering relatively quickly I would have been more satisfied if our meals pit stopped in a microwave for a few minutes. * First lunch, our waitress mistook lobster bisque (red) for split pea soup (green) — I ordered the pea soup. We like the spa — facials and massages (Scott is ah-mazing!). The Nutcracker performance by the Utica Academy of Dance students, and the History of West Point. It’s an older property, historic, and big. For a weekend we paid $3,590 for… we left underwhelmed.…
The area is simply beautiful, surroundings plenty of activities to do and a perfect place to enjoy nature and great views. But: rooms are poorly equipped, service is astonishing rude and the restaurant could not be worse. The only moment I felt treated as a customer was when. I had a beer and a soup in the small bar. It is really incredible how bad the service is in general, from the front desk in day one to the check out and luggage temporary store. A pity that an experience in such a beautiful place is completely ruin by a staff with total lack of professionalism.
Unparalleled service at this historic and stunningly beautiful hotel-resort. We enjoyed every minute of our stay (after a bit of a bumpy start at check in), the dining, the public spaces, the staff, the trails, the naturalists, and restaurant are simply outstanding. The hiking trails are well marked and offer spectacular views. They range from easy to difficult. We also had so much fun with the tomahawk tossing. Who knew. We took so many photos of the natural beauty surrounding us with its loving arms. Amazing. The foliage was past prime but still breathtaking in its bounty. We are looking forward to another stay next year. Definitely at this time of year.
We paid for the daily hiking pass at Mohonk and had a fantastic morning of hiking. We went on a Thursday in November and we saw maybe 5 other hikers the whole morning. There was a great mix of easier and more difficult trails, all very clean and lots of overlook gazebos with incredible views. The view from the Sky Tower was the icing on the cake! For those looking for a day of hiking, the experience was amazing!
My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at the Mohonk Mountain House. Our room and view were just beautiful (6th floor, lake view). The mountain views are just as spectacular, and we enjoyed those from the sunset porch. The staff was friendly and attentive. We wanted for nothing. The food was delicious and the activities plentiful. We laced up our boots and hiked as much as we could. The trails never seem to end! We relaxed and recharged, and we thank the staff at Mohonk for a perfect trip.
